In commemoration, I thought I'd take a look back at my most-read posts over this first year. So here we go:
5. The fifth-most popular post was about my good friend Warren G. Harding, from the day it was revealed that he had, indeed, fathered a child with his alleged mistress Nan Britton. Good times.
4. Coming in at #4 was my plan to dress as Sexy Abraham Lincoln. I'm a little offended that my plan to dress as Baberaham Lincoln was more popular than the post about the costume I actually wore, but whatever.
DIY Woodrow Wilson puppet. People have actually pinned this and tweeted about making it and stuff.
2. Coming in second: My Dolley Madison cake! Mmmm...so tasty. I should make it again, and so should you.
And...the moment you've been waiting for...Presidentress' most popular post of all time is....
1. How Ronald Reagan Destroyed My First Celebrity Crush! I'm not entirely clear why that one has been so popular, but I'm not upset about it either. I secretly hope that Barry Bostwick will somehow stumble upon it and send me an autographed photo. Actually, it would be better if he autographed a photo of a shirtless Reagan frolicking on the beach. Somebody make that happen, please.
So, what's next for Presidentress? More of the same, really. Stay tuned, because I have a couple fun giveaways planned---probably one around the Fourth of July and another before Christmas.
Also, we're potentially closer to that prediction I made back in my very first blog post, when I explained why I chose the name "Presidentress":
3) At some point, this country will probably have a female president. And inevitably, someone trying to be "cute" or, more likely, condescending will refer to her as "Presidentress," and I figure that'll drive traffic to this site.
Just to help the search engines along, I'll include the phrase "Presidentress Hillary Clinton" here right now. There we go. (And hello to any new readers of the future who have just found this blog by typing in those words!)
I want to thank all of you for putting up with me for a whole year, and I look forward to many more.
